Re: New to Fedora, Network Issues.


 If you have disabled iptables and can't ping a neighbour host the problem is not iptables but the Windows firewall, by default pings are disabled on windows boxes. You either have to open the ICMP protocol on the win firewall || disable it altogheter.

 I wouldn't disable iptables. The default iptables configuration on F11 allows me to smbclient any host on my work unless those win boxes have firewall enabled.
